New Birdbath Bakery Taking Over Vesuvio Soho Space

Vesuvio Bakery in Soho
Vesuvio Bakery, the cute Soho institution at 160 Prince Street that closed shop about a year ago after 90 years in business, has just been granted a second, greener life (an impressive feat given its storied green façade). Birdbath, the eco-bakery project of City Bakery that received an L Mag Green Award this year, will be opening its third location in the Vesuvio space in October, and in an interview with New York Birdbath head honcho Maury Rubin seemed awfully honored to be moving into the city's most famous green bakery:

“It’s an heirloom, it’s a treasure, it means the world,” he says. “That I have a chance to have my bakery be in it is a gift.”

Score one for retrofitted New York nostalgia. Click here to read the whole piece about Birdbath's Vesuvio takeover.
